Paris to commemorate Charlie Hebdo attack victims
Commemorative plaques will be unveiled in the presence of families to pay tribute to the victims on the different places where the attacks took place
Paris will commemorate the victims of the attacks on the satirical Charlie Hebdo newspaper and a kosher supermarket that left 17 people dead in January last year.
Commemorative plaques will be unveiled Tuesday in the presence of families and government members to pay tribute to the victims on the different places where the attacks took place on Jan. 7-9, 2015.
Another ceremony will take place on Jan. 10 on Paris’ Republique plaza, which was transformed into an informal memorial following the attacks in the French capital in January and November. The Paris mayor’s office has announced a “tree of remembrance” will be symbolically planted.
On Friday, France’s highest decoration, the Legion of Honor, was awarded posthumously to the victims of the January attacks through a government decree.
